Are you a fan of HGTV’s “Tiny House, Big Living” and “Tiny House Builders” and FYI’s “Tiny House Nation” shows? If so, then you might want to check out a new “micro home” development located inside Palm Canyon Mobile Club on South Canyon Drive in Palm Springs being touted as the first "tiny home" neighborhood in Southern California.
The Desert Sun’s Xochitl Pena writes in a recent article that Ravinia Communities in conjunction with Goetz Ventures plan to build 100 one and two bedroom micro homes, sized between 600 and 1,000 square feet. Their motto for this development - “go small, live large”.
The homes are being built by Silvercrest out of Corona and are designed to be much craftier than the traditional mobile home so as to maximize space. They also were designed with a modern, mid-century aesthetic in mind, perfect for the Palm Springs area. The homes feature such amenities as 9 foot ceilings, clerestory windows and fenced in yards. They can also come fully furnished and with hot tubs. Unlike some of the tiny homes featured on the aforementioned TV shows, there are no lofts or ladders to climb. Introductory prices start at $115,000 with a monthly rental fee of $650.
